Why Whole Plant Foods?

Whole plant foods are foods where the fiber is still present in plant foods.

Dietary Fiber is key to good nutrition. The benefits of dietary fiber are numerous, among them

  • Helps lower blood cholesterol
  • Helps balance blood sugar
  • Helps with bowel movements
  • Helps you feel full
